Our central Manchester (Spinningfields) office is home to teams building our insurance, money and energy channel products, as well as the teams that maintain our core services and platforms that glue everything together such as "Serenity" our state-of-the-art personalisation platform. You'll find a bunch of highly experienced people - passionate and proud to be helping households save money and constantly looking for new ways to do so.
Innovation and constant improvement
This is a seriously competitive market so we need to make sure our teams can innovate and respond to customer feedback - fast. Shedding most of our legacy systems has allowed us to cut the cost of delay to deliver, and to experiment quicker. Teams are autonomous, cross-functional and highly collaborative. We're never ‘finished’. We work in aligned verticals and seek to make quick and continual improvements to rapidly evolve live platforms rather than building the ‘ultimate design’. Adopting agile (with a little ‘a’) principles, teams define their own ways of working - regularly using practices like TDD, pair programming and mobbing - and we provide tools based around Accelerate metrics to help teams analyse, improve, be reflective and remove their own obstacles.
Commitment, tenacity and individual growth
We value people who care about what they do. Tenacious people who want to make a difference and thrive with high levels of accountability, collaboration and delivery. We welcome people who want to be part of an enthusiastic, hard-working team who will challenge each other but also have each other's backs.
Our teams are trusted with autonomy and given the freedom to think for themselves. We recognise the importance of individual growth and talent development - technology changes fast and we want your skills and mastery to grow throughout your time with us. We support peer mentoring allowing you to share your knowledge and experience, and benefit from the standout talents of your teammates.
We help households save money
We build the comparison platforms for Car Insurance, Home Insurance, Credit Cards and Loans products for Moneysupermarket Group. We also build Credit Monitor, our mobile applications, our authentication and SEO platforms, profile management and the microservice architecture and services that glues everything together internally and with all of our partners.
We help our users to save a combined £2.0bn on their household bills each year. We make a real difference to our customers, from those confident about their financial status to those who need to find more ways to save and make the most of their money.
We Never Settle
Before MoneySuperMarket, ensuring that you were getting the best deal on your household bills took a lot of effort - contacting individual companies, endlessly repeating your requirements and answering the same provider questions over and over - all taking up your valuable time. MoneySuperMarket changed that model to ensure customers can compare products online, quickly and easily, within minutes, and with the confidence they are seeing, and getting, the best deals possible.
MoneySuperMarket aims to stay on the front line of comparison innovation. Building a more connected platform that, with data and machine learning, will help us gain an even greater understanding of what our customers need, and when they need it, saving UK households even more money and helping them get money calm.
MoneySuperMarket is a digitally native company. We want every single customer to enjoy a seamless, stress-free experience when they use our platforms, switching shouldn’t be complicated. Java is the default for most of our microservice architecture - mainly Spring Boot - and we use Vue.js for our frontend. All of our infrastructure is defined as code and we remove config drift by regularly destroying our environments, including Production for fun. Our applications are containerised within Kubernetes, and additionally we’re embracing Serverless and other cloud native architectures. We share data between our services through an event-driven system backed by Kafka. Our operational data stores are a mix of Mongo and Relational Databases depending on requirements. We encourage our teams to find and use appropriate tools and technologies and to demonstrate the value behind their choices. We automate as much as we can, including regression testing. Jenkins is our current choice for CI/CD and teams own their own pipelines. We use A/B testing to ensure rapid delivery of site improvements and optimal performance. We utilise Machine Learning to continually improve our understanding of our customers enabling us to provide them with the best possible service. We treat our responsibility towards customer data seriously and are constantly looking to improve the security, and our knowledge, of our data systems.
